We all know the Hollywood Well of Original Ideas is only as full as the talent the industry employs, which is one of the reasons why the much less profit-centered independent side of cinema will always generate more creativity. But this knowledge doesnít make the constant string of remakes any easier, and itís reaching a fever pitch now that Fox is wiping the dust off of West Side Story.
One of the best movie musicals in history is finally coming to Blu-Ray this week, as the West Side Story 50th Anniversary Edition hits the shelves today, November 15, in gorgeous high definition. Not only is the film restored to gorgeous quality, but the disc includes a ton of bonus features, like a featurette about the film's legacy, song-by-song commentary from legendary lyricist Stephen Sondheim
West Side Story: 50th Anniversary Edition will hit the market on November 15, and if you are willing to wait, it will come chock full of whistles and bells. The real prize is the Limited Edition 4 Disc Boxed Set that comes with a two-disc Blu-Ray, a newly restored DVD, a tribute music CD, and collectible memorabilia
